Nintendo’s (NTDOY) Switch, the new-age home gaming console system offering additional mobility convenience to user who can easily carry it on the go, has emerged as the fastest-selling video game system in Nintendo’s history. (See also, Nintendo to Charge Users for New Online Switch Service.)

According to a report by the NPD Group, which tracks the sale of video games in the U.S., the Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in the month of March, making it one of the fastest-selling gaming systems of all times. Interestingly, the Kyoto, Japan-based Nintendo was able to achieve the remarkable feat at a time of the year when launches don't usually take place. Spike in sales of gaming devices and accessories are usually observed during the peak holiday season around December, or during summers.

The huge record-breaking demand is accompanied by a supply backlog, as the company is struggling to meet its supply needs. Citigroup analysts predict the company will release a smaller Switch device in 2019, Bloomberg reported. (See also, Report: Nintendo Will Double Switch Production.)

Nintendo is also aggressively pushing for including more games on the Nintendo Switch to attract more buyers which could lead to more sales in coming months. For instance, the company expects to launch the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game, which contains several new additions than any other Mario Kart game in the series history, on Switch by April 28. ARMS game is expected to become available by mid-June, and the Splatoon 2 game could show up in July. (See also, Nintendo Switch Could Breathe Life Into GameStop.)

“Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone.”

The company was also successful in having record sales of other games. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game is reported to sell a total of 1.3 million units, of which around 925,000 units are sold for Nintendo Switch, while rest were sold for the Wii U console, another gaming console from the company.
